Dr. Martens was targeted at dock workers in the U.K

I read an article in Footwear Plus Magazine about Dr. Marten shoes and how the original 1460 lace up boot is coming back, and this come with more color, but with the same boot shape. The article stated that their trademark 1460 lace up boot, was based on the day the orignal boot launched on April 1, 1960, -which is 1/4/60 to those in England. The boot was first targeted U.K dock workers, warehousemen and bluecollar laborers. Dr. Martens also have boots for woman that are trendy and I like their high leg boot and the white orignal 1460.
